Our Artist Spotlight blogs are a weekly feature where we focus on one of our performers, giving you the chance to find out more about the people behind the performances, and offering an insight into the world of entertainment.
I started performing in 2009, after I was spotted by an agent that took me to a few events and from there I learned quickly about the industry.
“I really enjoyed amusing people with my tricks”
It takes a lot of daily training to achieve a good level but to be able to work in the entertainment industry you need more than titles and awards,.
Each event is unique and every time it’s something new, that’s what I like in the events industry.
“I love everything about this industry”
Be positive, be yourself but most important learn how to listen. Be open to the messages others send you as it is what will make you understand what you need to progress
“But most of all, always smile”
The best event I did for Contraband was StrongbowRio Challenge tour. It was my first direct experience with Contraband and I was treated like someone they have worked with for years.
“Like if I was family to them which makes this memorable”
I like to see every performance in a positive view and since each experience is unique they are all my favourites.
“I see the negative parts just as lessons to become better and not a bad thing”
I get my inspiration from music, other freestylers but also dancers and singers help a lot to come up with new ideas but it all come from inside and expressing what you feel through your skills.
The other entertainers I admire the most are singers like Shakira, J lo and Beyoncé., they are all women to admire as they paved the way and stand up for women. Athletes wise Mia Hamm has been my all time favourite female football player but Totti is my idol!
“Freestyle wise Soufiane Bencok is my favourite”
It’s hard to explain but I just find time for everything as it’s all important. I have less social life as I prefer to train than go out to bars and nightclubs.
“I have a very supportive family so they make it easy”
If I could change something in the events industry, I would really love to see more job oppurtunuties for female free stylers..
“Not everyone believes that women can do amazing things with a football”
I want to keep free styling, win the world championship and inspire more girls and open doors for them.
